The war between humanity and Faerie devastated both sides. Or so 15-year-old Liza has been told. Nothing has been seen or heard from Faerie since, and Liza’s world bears the scars of its encounter with magic. Trees move with sinister intention, and the town Liza calls home is surrounded by a forest that threatens to harm all those who wander into it. Then Liza discovers she has the Faerie ability to see—into the past, into the future—and she has no choice but to flee her town. Liza’s quest will take her into Faerie and back again, and what she finds along the way may be the key to healing both worlds.
Janni Lee Simner’s first novel for young adults is a dark fairy-tale twist on apocalyptic fiction—as familiar as a nightmare, yet altogether unique.
Short & Sweet: Bones of Faerie is a great fantasy dystopian – a genre mix I have never read before. I loved the action, the history and the characters and I cannot wait to read more by this author. I honestly did not want this book to end it was such a thrilling read.
Final Verdict: I highly recommend Bones of Faerie to any reader of fantasy or dystopian fiction.
